Hopefully there are some tests they can run besides or instead of doing the biopsy. It would be good for you to find out for sure what is going on there. I'm praying for you. Do you see a pulmonologist? I suppose so. A good one can really help with lung stuff. Hopefully you will have success with the new rheumie. I just found out the other day that the plaquenil is really working well for me, took long enough.
